Oh, Yikes! Item: 136842
History's Grossest, Wackiest, Moments
by Joy Masoff
The real Dracula. Gladiators and guillotines. Life before toilet paper. Famous monsters: the Abominable Snowman, the Loch Ness Monster, Henry VIII. Attila the Hun's raw-meat saddle, disgusting medieval jobs, how knights in armor went to the bathroom, and why sailors liked eating in the dark. (Hint: You can't see what's crawling out of your food.)
What Joy Masoff did for science in her perennial bestseller, Oh Yuck!, she now does for history in Oh, Yikes!, an illustrated grossopedia of mankind's freakiest, funniest, weirdest, and wildest moments.
